As part of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission’s Science Transfer Program, members of the QFC will hold two, two-day workshops during November 14-17, 2016. The first workshop will take place in Detroit, MI, and the second in Toronto, ON. Intended for Great Lakes fisheries managers, each workshop will consist of a mock Structured Decision Making (SDM) process for barrier removal decisions, presentations by experts on the state of science in predicting native and invasive fish production above barriers, and guided discussion on research and decision-making. Workshop participants will learn the methods of SDM and gain an increased understanding of the scientific knowledge and uncertainty in predicting fish production above existing barriers.
If interested in attending, you can register for one of the workshops by providing your name, email address, and preferred workshop location to Alex Jensen at email@example.com, or inquire further about the workshops at the same address. Initial registration will be used to determine final workshop enrollment on a first-come, first-serve basis, as attendance is capped at 30 participants per workshop. There is no registration fee for these workshops
